World of Warcraft’s 8th Anniversay Event Begins

World of Warcraft, the MMO that ate our free time with extreme prejudice, has been around since November 23, 2004. To celebrate the 8th anniversary of the launch, Blizzard has set the in-game anniversary event live today. This year, they commemorate the occasion with a special twist…it’s exactly the same as last year’s including the in-game email referring to the events of the last expansion instead of the current one.

At least they remembered to include the bonus of a 1 hour 8% buff to experience and reputation gains. This will help greatly with those grinding out Mists of Pandaria rep or that last stretch to the level cap. And don’t forget to log on for the special event achievement.

While you’re at it, you can hit the Pilgrim’s Bounty event. This, of course, comes with its own set of achievements. Not a bad way to power level Cooking and picking up a turkey pet.

Blizzard also released this trailer celebrating 8-years of WoW that shows highlights of each expansion. Take a trip down memory lane and then you too can argue about how things were better in Vanilla days.
